Episode 45

Move Beyond Worry and Fear to Create a Life You Love

With Amber Rae

Why do we hold back from pursuing what matters most? Why do we listen to the voice inside our head that tells us we’re not good enough, smart enough, or talented enough? How can we move beyond the fear and doubt that prevents us from creating a life that reflects who we truly are?

On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru, talks to Amber Rae, an author, artist, and speaker whose work invites you to live your truth, befriend your emotions, and express your gifts. She has been called a “Millennial Motivator” by Fortune and “The Brené Brown of Wonder” by Mind Body Green. She is the New York Times best selling author of Choose Wonder Over Worry: Move Beyond Fear and Doubt to Unlock Your Full Potential.

In this episode, Dhru and Amber talk about how to face your fears, wake up to your truth, and get to the source of what’s holding you back. They discuss how to greet worry with wonder, and Amber’s three-step approach for dialoguing with and finding wisdom in your emotions—especially the messy ones—so you can get back to focusing on what matters most. Through a thoughtful blend of vulnerability and soulfulness, Amber Rae guides you in expressing the fullness of who you are and the gifts you are here to give.

I know you’ll love this episode of The Broken Brain Podcast as much as I did.
